In the past seven years, Brittany has worked in the vacation rental industry on the Outer Banks.

Growing up on the Outer Banks gave Brittany an appreciation for the ocean that has stayed with her. Working in the business of vacation rentals allows Brittany to share that love of the beach with our owners and guests.
